A few weeks ago, I found a great tutorial for making an adorable puppet theater at Flipflops and Applesauce. I saved it, thinking that the kids might enjoy making it. Saturday, I showed it to Brianna since I had finally emptied the key component – a cereal box.

Apparently making puppet theaters is beneath a teenager of her advanced years. I had thought that she might enjoy making it and writing out some skits for Josh and Megan. I guess not.

So, Sunday I showed it to Megan. Yes, she wanted to make it. Later. Finally, late Sunday afternoon, I decided I’d just make it myself. I reasoned that it was probably a bit complicated for Megan to do on her own, she’d probably get bored helping and she’d probably have just as much fun just doing the puppet shows.

It turned out so cute!

Megan was suitably impressed. Even Brianna seemed to be impressed. And, I was right. Megan immediately set to work making stick puppets and even background scenery. I can see this being a fun activity for when the spring teaser we’ve been having is over and it’s cold outside again.

  1. Very cute! I can imagine hours of enjoyment with this one. I’ll have to tuck it away for our next empty cereal box!

  2. It turned out lovely. I like the idea of making backgrounds, too.

    Sometimes, you just have to do it yourself to make the kiddos appreciate it.

    Lots of love,
